The Blessings 3.0

Psalm 23:

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”

The Lord is capable of taking care of my needs. He is the Shepherd, and I am the sheep. He will take care of (me) His sheep.

“He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.”

The Lord has the best intentions. He put me in the right, perfect place. I have the Right Placement.

“He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

I am at rest. There is Peace because God is in control.

“Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.”

I know I might have troubles, and there might be problems all around, but I am confident that God will not leave me nor abandon me.

“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.”

Do I need to worry about what other people think about me or my status?

I’d rather quake for lack of God’s presence in my life than the presence of a man with contempt.

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.”

God’s blessings come to me naturally every day of my life. His blessings follow me.

Yes, it follows me.

Amen!

The Blessings 2.0

“So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take away sickness from among you. No woman in your land will miscarry or be barren; I will fulfill the number of your days.…

Most of God’s promises required obedience for fulfillment.

The Blessings

Although man likes to cut corners, God always has the best intentions.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

“In his kindness, God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.”

Troubles do not last, but God’s promises of Restoration, Support, Strength, and Right Placement is assured.

Be blessed!

How to stop The Falling From Grace 5.0

In my final post on this series, I will share a few strategies for staying afloat and avoiding falling from grace to grass.

I emphasized that Prayer is not just about the usual talking to God or asking that we all do. I am talking about pleading or begging for a cause, not for a short time but a continual or consistent, intentional act that draws the grace of God to move in a given direction.

Prayer- your saving grace

The secret strategies you can use to stay from sinking are as follows.
– do not ignore the prompts.
– even after falling into sin, go ahead and pray to your God.
– ask God for help
-ask your mentor or counselor for assistance (if you have one)
– if you do not have any mentor or guidance, consistently talk to God both loudly and in your heart.
– you will get out of any trouble if you maintain a cordial relationship with God (remember David and his sinful relationship, and Peter with his denial of Jesus).


– There are times that your flesh is so appealing that it is pushing you to sin against God, and it may overwhelm the weary soul that you give in.

The secret to overcoming this is to keep talking to God in your heart.

The tactic of the devil is to create a guilt feeling. This feeling is so overwhelming that you think God cannot accept you nor listen to you.

It is not true. It is another lie from the enemy to keep your relationship with God strained.

If the devil can get you to think that you are not acceptable or worthless, he has succeeded in keeping you away from God.


If he succeeded in keeping you away from God, then he has succeeded in making your communication with God a difficult one. Once this sets in, you lose your confidence to approach God, and you are on the cause for a steep and deep fall.


If you can kick out this lie, you have overcome it.

The devil plans to cheat us, but God’s plan for us is of peace to give us a beautiful ending.

We will win and overcome by God’s grace.

Glory to God; Peace on Earth

Merry Christmas!
I pray that the good news shall fill your surroundings. The joy of the Lord shall dwell in your household.

A savior is Born!


Peace!
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

How to stop The Falling From Grace 3.0

In my last post, I emphasized that Prayer is not just about the usual talking to God or asking that we all do. I am talking about pleading or begging for a cause, not for a short time but a continual or consistent, intentional act that draws the grace of God to move in a given direction.

Prayer- your saving grace

David was known as a man after God’s heart. He loved God, and obviously, God loved him too.

David obeyed all the commandments of God, and he didn’t turn away from following God.

However, David still errs. David had sexual relations with another man’s wife. He went ahead to kill the husband of the woman after a futile effort to clear all traces.

I have often thought that if David, a man after God’s heart, can fall, most likely anyone can.

Nevertheless,  David searched for God’s help again and again. He pleaded for mercy. Even the prophet, Nathan, prayed for him. He was very remorseful and acknowledged that he missed it. 

David understood the importance of falling and the desperate need for grace. He sought it and found it. This type of action wasn’t an ordinary prayer. It is the pleading and crying to God I talked about earlier.

David would go-ahead to write a whole chapter of Psalms 51 dedicated to this encounter with God.

We need this today– to seek God desperately whether it’s convenient or not. As believers, we must seek God in the darkest moment of our lives. Christians must cry out to Him. Sin must not be allowed to create an unnecessary barrier. It must break! David didn’t wait till he feels right or feels good or until his senses say, ” now, you can approach God”

No, he went immediately after God. Demonstration of action like this is how to avert falling from grace.  Never wait a second. Begin to seek God immediately you are down and plead your case for restoration. 

If David can have it, so can you.

We will not miss it by God’s grace.

How to stop The Falling From Grace 2.0

In my last post, I emphasized that Prayer is not just about the usual talking to God or asking that we all do. I am talking about pleading or begging for a cause, not for a short time but a continual or consistent, intentional act that draws the grace of God to move in a given direction.

Prayer- your saving grace

The reason for this type is because it is a plea to save the Christian not from sin but from falling into dismay.

Jesus said to Peter, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat,

Remember, Satan is only doing what he knows best, and that is to “steal, kill and destroy.” Satan intended to destroy Peter (also known as Simon).

God has a better plan; a great purpose for us than we can think of–to save us from the wicked hands.

but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”

I believe Peter would have fallen and failed if Jesus had not intervened and prayed for Peter.

It is this type of pleading that delivers from falling from Grace. We must quest for this with passion, or someone must pray on our behalf to save us from losing it all in life.

Although Peter denied Jesus three times, Peter experienced deliverance from spiritual depression and death.  It is the Grace that Peter enjoyed but that Judas Iscariot could not.

The thin line between missing it and gaining is the Grace of God that comes from passionate intercession and God’s Mercy that comes with it.

I pray that we will not miss it in our lives and that we will enjoy God’s Grace and Mercy that keeps one above and flying high.

How to stop The Falling From Grace 1.0

Recently, I have been studying some notable names in the bible that made mistakes or missteps in their actions but were ultimately saved by grace through the ministry of intercession.

Two people stand-out of the many that are worthy of discussion. I’m talking about Peter and David, both of whom, if not for the grace of intercession that they enjoyed, could have fallen, and their end would have been catastrophic. They made huge errors but rose again through intercessory prayers.

I found the secret to averting falling from grace, and it is Prayer, and I am not talking about the usual talking to God or asking that we all do. I am talking about pleading or begging for a cause, not for a short time but a continual or consistent, intentional act that draws the grace of God to move in a given direction. 

Prayer- your saving grace

Prayers and continual intercession could save anyone from falling regardless of the level of fall.

For the next blogs, I will devote time to talk about Peter and David.

Peter enjoyed the grace of Jesus’ prayers in the dark moments of his life, and as a result, he gained strength that was invaluable in times of need.

David fell after a careless busy-body exhibition, but Nathan, the prophet, interceded on his behalf. He also cried out his soul to God.

Join me as we delve deeper into the two personalities in my next post.

A grateful heart

Oh, it is good to worship and praise the Lord.

Signs that you are drifting away

The following are the critical signs that you are drifting away.

— when you reduce the amount of time you spend on the things you love to do.

— when other people, like your mentor, warns you but you refuse to listen. 

— when there are clear signs that you have abandoned the right lane, yet you insist on your desire.

— when suddenly you fall in love with things that you hate or dislike before.

— when you deliberately choose to do the despicable despite your conscience saying no to such acts.

— when you disobey your devoted calling.

–when you don’t share your secrets with your loved ones as you used to because your thoughts are stained with unpleasant dirt. 

–when you won’t let go of pride and you are full of yourself. 

— when you suddenly begin to say “it doesn’t matter” to things that usually matter before. 

— when you don’t seek counsel. 

— when you seek counsel but don’t follow it.

— when you seek counsel and follow it but don’t ask for direction when confused. 

— when you say you have lost your interest and you have no passion anymore.

Like a gazelle, run and cry for help before your life falls apart like a pack of cards…or like “things fall apart”.
